Married couples do not have to file joint bankruptcy. However, this does not neccesarily mean that all joint marital property will be exempted from bankruptcy proceedings. Also, married couples who live in community property states are usually considered equally responsible for debts incurred during the marriage. That being the case, the non filing spouse might still be held responsible for debts that were discharged in the filing spouse's BK. The best option is to discuss the matter with a qualified bankruptcy attorney before proceeding.
